Laptops containing Metropolitan Police payroll details stolen

Laptop computers containing the payroll details of half of the Metropolitan Police staff have been stolen.

Scotland Yard has confirmed the computers were taken in a raid last on the offices of Logica CMG in Southwark, south-east London, the firm responsible for the Met’s pay and pension services.

The three laptops contained details of the Metropolitan Police payroll.

A spokesman said there was “minimal” risk of the staff involved falling victim to fraud or identity theft.

One man has been arrested and bailed in connection with the burglary.
